Farm Commons: connecting farmers and farm law

Making connections between farmers and farm law is critical. Farmers are affected by law and policy, and they have the right to know how. Farm Commons is an organization fostering discussion between farmers and attorneys and connecting farmers with the law to help them understand how it affects their operation and build a strong legal foundation for their farm. By providing sustainable farmers in particular with proactive legal resources, Farm Commons’ mission is to create stable, resilient foundations of community based food systems. The website links to farm law resources and even a short video series on specific farm law topics. Check it out!
